The Law of Ancient Dominating Good

RisaNewSEsoteric Astrology as News for the week of February 4–10, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs
Throughout 2009 Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune maintained a close proximity or conjunction in Aquarius, sign of world service and the new culture. It continues to produce noise, messiness, confusion, dissolving away, wounds, chaos and conflict impacting and affecting humanity. Each of the moving planets and their interactions are conveying to Earth a continuous tale of the old ways (Ray 6) dissolving so the new (age, time, cycle, dispensation, Laws & Principles, Ray 7, etc.) can emerge. Daily new realities impel us to change. Eventually as all things break down, we begin to imagine the unimaginable. The Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius—impacting our consciousness, how we live, relate and the future to be—is helping us do just that.  Humanity is turning away from material things and embracing spiritual materialism (sharing). Humanity is learning to radiate Goodwill in order to create Right Relations. These are the promises of Aquarius. From “Esoteric Healing” (p. 29) we read, “… some day the new Law of Ancient Dominating Good which lies behind all that God made will be brought into activity by the spiritual will of man” (humanity, the thinking ones).

Earth’s first Aquarian Age occurred 26,000 years ago (a Platonic year ago). We are speaking here of the alchemy of time—knowledge that time isn’t linear—time is cyclic (circular) and that each “season” of time brings about needed transformations. The ancients knew that what occurs in the heavens (first) is then reflected (as events) on Earth. Time moves in cycles, with each cycle radiating a quality (law, principle, etc.) that creates “events’ that reform, recreate, restore, reconstruct, and reshape our world. We are now entering that time. It is written it will be a Golden Age.

See EA, 546…Pluto, dying of old, creation of new. We can no longer fit into the old paradigms, realities, etc. Will, divinely expressed, is the theme of the coming world religion, and the impulse behind philanthropy. Love, however, has never been expressed.

Aries-March 21–April 20
Have you noticed you’re dreaming more often? Are you feeling more intuitive, sensitive? Inspired and insightful? Prayer, meditation, study, retreats all are good for you at this time, allowing more gentleness to emerge providing you with compassionate caring. These help when you’re placed within an Aquarian group, asked to be the leader and invited to visit the future. The world is within you.

Taurus April 21–May 21
You have one talk - to focus on health, tend to your bones, take more calcium and magnesium, not let yourself get cold. You must use your pragmatism to care for yourself with greater concern. As your social life becomes more demanding you will also have to weigh what’s best—to be out and about, leading everyone into the future, or to stay at home nursing your physical body back to perfect health. Use Benedictine tinctures.

Gemini May 22–June 20
Something beneficent, benevolent and bountiful happens between you and the world, between you and your work and profession. You’re inspired, encouraged and guided internally. With careful study, years of preparation, and viewing the past in terms of your great and wonderful gifts, pathways open, choices and commitments are made, and abundance settles into your heart. Interesting times for you.

Cancer June 21–July 20
A new and different study has been introduced and you’re quite fascinated. It makes you feel generous and for the first time in a long time, you feel at home. There’s a new exploration into a culture or a time or a reality that was unknown to you. Now it’s presenting itself and you in turn are participating fully. This changes your inner life. You are happy.

Leo July 21–August 22
Watch as you see yourself becoming more perceptive and wise, more intuitive and enlightened in terms of others, especially those you work with. Someone or something or some words will assist you in a shift into greater and deeper awareness of spiritual realities. This comes through intimacy, money, resources and/or dreams. Love is good. Bring it into the light. Tend to taxes.

Virgo August 23–September 22
You will relate better and better with others, especially those close to you. They will bloom and flourish, increase, thrive and prosper. Then you will find yourself a greater support to others, giving guidance where needed. Challenge nothing and no one. Offer compassionate understanding instead. It will nourish your heart.

Libra September 23–October 22
Think about what you want to be doing daily … what job, career, occupation, work, artistry, vocation you truly and deeply need to pursue. If you don’t know, ask yourself. The information will subtly appear. Talk to everyone about your hopes, dreams and wishes. In the coming year your health greatly improves, you become stronger and more resilient. Have a salad with each meal. And have a bird, a cat or a fish for a pet.

Scorpio October 23–November 21
Don’t go down the road of regular investments thinking you’re lucky and the economy will improve soon. Don’t take risks with your money and resources. Instead begin serious preparation for a new economy to unfold looking much different than what we’re used to. Don’t speculate. Instead study books on greenhouses and bio shelters and use your resources to create these environments. We haven’t much time left.

Sagittarius November 22–December 20
So many different ideas flow through your mind. Perhaps you’re thinking of moving far away. Perhaps it’s to return home. You always want a place near a body of water. There is a benevolence occurring in your home and family life now. Interest in genealogy, your family tree, relatives and loved ones may take center stage. This nourishes you till the next phase of personal development appears. Things are happening.

Capricorn December 21–January 20
Notice in the next five months your thinking becomes happy, optimistic and makes sense of previous life questions and behaviors of others. You will shift from vague criticism and cynicisms to realizing intentions for goodwill bring grace to all interactions. You’ll realize everyone’s doing their very best and then help others who’ve lost their way. Begin writing (journaling, blogging) in earnest. You have something important to say.

Aquarius January 21–February 18
This coming year will be lucrative for you and money and resources will be available as never before. That means more attention to the well-being of your finances. Use resources to help others. Pay all debts, including credit cards. You don’t want to owe money to anyone. Don’t loan to friends and figure out where to put your money should the dollar fail. That’s a serious situation to consider.

Pisces February 19–March 20
They say that good fortune, sunshine, blessings, grace and beauty will follow you this year. It’s said that self-confidence and a new sense of self-identity will flourish. In the meantime, maintain all responsibilities and obligations, tithe generously and consistently, and be careful with what you eat. Jupiter expands us in every which way.

Gemini Sun, Pentecost, Shavuot—Enlightenment and Gladness

As the sun enters Gemini on Sunday, sign of speaking, communication, thinking, inter-relations, writing and understanding languages, the feast days of Pentecost & Shavuot (Catholic and Jewish festivals) occur. During Pentecost’s 50 days after Easter, tongues of fire appear above the heads of the disciples, providing them with the ability to understand all languages and all feelings hidden in the minds and hearts of humanity. It’s recorded that Pentecost began with a loud noise, which happened in an upper room (signifying the mind). The Christ (World Teacher) told his disciples (after his ascension) when encountering a man at a well carrying a water pot (signs for Age of Aquarius) to follow him to an upper room. There, the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence) would overshadow them, expand their minds, give them courage and enable them to teach throughout the world, speaking all languages and thus able to minister to the true needs of a “seeking” humanity. Pentecost (50 days, pentagram, Ray 5, Venus, concrete and scientific knowledge, the Ray of Aquarius) sounds dramatic, impressive and scary: The loud noise, a thunderous rush of wind and then “tongues of fire” above the heads of each disciple (men and women). Fire has purpose. It purifies, disintegrates, purges, transforms and liberates (frees) us from the past. This was the Holy Spirit (Ray 3, love and wisdom) being received by the disciples, so they would teach in the world and inform humanity of the Messiah (Christ), who initiated the new age (Pisces) and gave humanity the new law (adding to the 10 Commandments of the Aries Age) to Love (Ray 2) one another. Note: Gemini is also Ray 2. Shavuot is the Jewish Festival of Gladness, the First Fruits Festival celebrating the giving of the 10 Commandments to Moses as the Aries Age was initiated. Thus, we have two developmental stages here, Jewish festival of the Old Testament. Pentecost of the New Testament. We have gladness, integrating both.
